Gear wildland fire crews use to stay safe

PHOENIX -

Part of the gear that every wildland firefighter carries with them is a fire shelter.

The 19 firefighters killed in the Yardell Hill Fire reportedly deployed their fire shelters as a last resort while fighting the flames.

FOX 10'S Anita Roman shows us how these fire shelters work.
